Frequently asked questions

What is alternative dispute resolution (ADR)?

Before a dispute reaches the courts, you may choose an alternative dispute resolution process such as arbitration or mediation. These processes should help both parties to reach an agreement without taking the dispute to courts.

When is litigation required?

If you cannot reach a resolution through alternative dispute resolution processes such as arbitration or mediation, litigation is required. This involves taking your dispute to the courts and allowing a judge to determine the outcome.

How long does a dispute take to settle?

If you can achieve an agreement out of court, the process will be quicker. Early intervention can help to avoid many common issues with dispute resolution. Mediation and arbitration will be more effective if both parties are committed to reaching an agreement.

How do you resolve a commercial dispute?

The process will vary depending on the motivations of everyone involved. If all parties are committed to reaching an agreement, you may only need to review what was originally agreed and determine how you can reach an amicable resolution. If a resolution cannot be reached, litigation may be required.
